Three days from Bethlehem

Tradition has it that the Magi arrived in Bethlehem on January 6. The exact date is not as important as the fact that they completed their journey. They worshipped, honored, and bestowed gifts to the baby Jesus. We don't know much about them, except that they did complete their journey.

Some are faster than others, and when a person gets to their destination is not as important as getting to the destination. At least ten minutes a day of integrated, holistic exercise that incorporates spiritual formation with bodily exercise will eventually bring a person to the presence of the Lord. It is consistency with one's spiritual disciplines that we are constantly moving forward. During this month it is my hope and prayer that you have discovered a few routines that worked for you, and will be able to move into this new year with a means to accomplish the God given dreams and hopes in your life. As you wrap up an exercise routine pause for a few seconds and listen to the voice of the Lord calling to you, encouraging you, and blessing you.

Lord, help us enter into your presence and listen to your voice calling out for us to follow you.
